A modern, Australian original oil painting.

Beauty and freedom created in a time of restriction and limitation. The Island is within COVID-safe distance of my coastal home, the colour palette a limited set of four favourites. In a time of repetition, limitation, and restriction, it focuses on the freedom  and power of the natural elements. 



I recommend a study or a dining nook for this piece. It is as powerful as it is grounding, and acts as a beautiful tool to set a sophistricated atmosphere in a room. Depending on the size of your living area and what you already have hanging on your walls, the size of this piece might need a partner to hang with. Consider commisioning a partner piece, a contrasting work of a similar size, or a collection of smaller sized friends. 



I use a variety of tools and paints but the favourites which make a feature in this painting are Langridge Paints and Wallace Seymour Colours. Two beautiful brands with high quality gear and a passion for the process. My canvases are hand stretched in Sydney by Pigment Lab, on sustainably sourced Australian wood and high quality canvas. 




This piece is currently shown at an exhibition in September 2020. If you purchase the piece please let me know if you are comfortable waiting to receive it until after September. The piece will be marked as sold during the exhibition.
